Ozzy: Why There Won’t Be Another Sabbath Album

October 30, 2015

Black Sabbath recently announced they would record a follow-up to 2013’s reunion album “13” — that’s no longer happening… instead they’ve unveiled next year’s farewell tour.

Singer Ozzy Osbourne confirmed to that album plans have been scrapped. “We were gonna do one before the tour, but I’m 67 in December, it would take three or four years to write and record an album,” he said. “And so we decided just to do a farewell tour. If we did an album and it went to No. 2, people would go, ‘It’s over.’ There’s only one more place you can go after No. 1 and that’s No. 2, you know.”

“13”, the first Sabbath album in 35 years to feature original members Ozzy, guitarist Tony Iommi and bassist Geezer Butler, topped the Billboard album chart when it arrived in June 2013 — giving the band their first U.S. No. 1 album ever.

Sabbath announced a second North American leg of its “The End” tour earlier this week. The new leg will kick off on August 17 in Wantagh, New York, closing out on September 21 in Phoenix. The first North American leg will start on January 20 in Omaha, Nebraska, ending on February 25 in New York City.

Ozzy plays a solo show on Halloween (Saturday, October 31) at the Voodoo Music + Arts Experience in New Orleans. Joining Ozzy as guests will be Slash, Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello & Sabbath bandmate Geezer Butler on bass.
